Editor's note: Here's how Brian signed off the broadcast Thursday night from New Orleans. This topic always touches a nerve among viewers, so I've included the full text here.
We are back with our coverage of the continuing aftermath of Hurricane Katrina here in New Orleans. It is an ongoing story we have pledged to follow. And not all of our viewers like it. And just about every day in their e-mails, they let us know it.
Just today this arrived: "Please, drop it and deal with actual current news."
Another writes: "I'm so sick of hearing about Katrina. I live in North Dakota and have been through more bad weather than that. Those people need to stop crying and move on, ON THEIR OWN. Why should we have to pay for it, and when will you stop going on and on about it?"
And from California: "stop making NEWS of what isn't NEWS anymore."
While the overwhelming majority of e=mails is POSITIVE, we do get some of those negative comments every day. But look what happens here every day.
Today we went out with a body recovery team. Last week they found two brothers, together... undiscovered for eight months. They are still finding bodies, and we'll show you what their jobs are like tomorrow night. Meantime, a huge area in this region is still broken, and not at all ready for the next hurricane.
That's our broadcast for this Thursday night, here in the Lakeview section of New Orleans. Thank you for being with us. Tomorrow night the broadcast will originate from St. Bernard Parish.
